Man Or Astroman? - Peel Sessions 1993-2000

For those of you suffering excruciating cold turkey in anticipation of the next Nightingales post, the bad news is I'm sticking to my guns and not posting anything by them until March. The good news is March is only a week away - this prolonged abstinence will cleanse our minds and make us all better human beings in the long run.

Some of us may be pining for spring when the first MOAM? album of new astro-galactic sonic adventures this side of the millenium, along with a third 7" single in the Analogue Series series, is scheduled to penetrate earth's orbit. To keep our feet firmly where gravity intended, but still looking up beyond the sky and dreaming of infinite worlds a universe away, here are all six sessions the cosmic combo recorded for John Peel.

The 1995 session did receive a limited commercial release in the form of a double pack 7" ep. Television Fission is missing from the 1996 session - if anyone has it, please beam a binary code to base. The final session from 2000 was recorded live on air in front a small studio audience. Around this time, live sessions were a regular feature on Peel's latter day shows. He would run a competition a few weeks prior to the session taking place; names of entrants with the correct answers were pulled out of a hat and announced on air, the lucky winners invited to attend the session.
